5 Points to Consider Before Accepting or Declining a Job Offer
Author: Shanmugam Ramalingam
Accepting a job offer is not a simple task. You read several job ads, walk to several businesses, attend umpteen interviews and endlessly wait in anticipation. At long last you receive offer letters by email, SMS or letters, and start pondering over what to do with them. The question of whether you want to accept, or not to accept is a difficult thing to answer. One offer may be good on location, another on salary and yet another on holidays and vacation. Some offers may be from very strong brands and you may want to work for them just for the sake of prestige.
There are dozens of parameters that you can use to evaluate an offer, but the real problem is in giving each parameter a score. Once you have done that, the next problem to tackle is the several permutations and combinations that you can make with the parameters themselves.

Sure Fire Ways to Sabotage Your Job Interview
Author: Jon Piggins
You Only Get One Opportunity to Make a First Impression
 When the interviewer greets you, don’t wait awkwardly and immobile in your seat.
Instead:
 Make a great first impression, you only get one shot at this. When you meet the interviewers or any of the staff, look the person in the eye and say hello, Offer your hand and shake hands confidently.
It is respectful to stand up when someone new enters or leaves the room. Don’t take your place for granted yet, you’re just at the beginning. Be sure to maintain good posture. You don’t have to sit bolt upright, but avoid slouching and wiggling, as you will give people a negative impression.
If you are asked why you are looking for a new job …
 Don’t say: “I am ready for a change”, “I don’t get along with my boss”, “The workload where I am is too much”, “The unemployment office requires me to go on interviews”.
Instead:
Provide positive and proactive reasons for why you are looking for a new job. Discuss the excitement you feel […]
